Blessed Is The Man That Delights In The Law of the Lord


“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.   But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doeth he meditate day and night.” Psalm 1:1-2

“The law of the Lord” is the daily bread of the true believer.  And yet, in David’s day how small was the volume of inspiration, for they had scarcely anything save the first five books of Moses!  How much more, then, should we prize the whole written Word which it is our privilege to have in all our houses!  Bu, alas, what ill-treatment is given to this angel from heaven!  We are not all Berean searchers of the Scriptures.  How few among us can lay claim to the benediction of the text!  Perhaps some of you can claim a sort of negative purity, because you do not walk in the way of the ungodly; but let me ask you–Is your delight in the law of God?  do you study God’s Word?  Do you make it the man of your right hand–your best companion and hourly guide?  If not, this blessing belongeth not to you. -Charles Haddon Spurgeon

One thought on “Blessed Is The Man That Delights In The Law of the Lord

  1. What a breath of fresh air to hear of another, yes, another believer define and reject much of the contemporary teaching that is currently circulating in the so called American churches. Make no mistake, the issue of the hour in the church is what I have come to call “emoitionalism”. This is where every thought or doctrine must be filtered through some type of feeling based mindset. It is the thought that how things stimulate me emotionally is of highest priority thereby displacing the intellectual side of our being. If it makes me “feel” good it must be OK. Emotions do have their place, otherwise without them we become mindless robots. However when we operate soley by them we get the same lie as the humanist who places human thought above all else.
